 Went out to the boro and  picked up a 351w to tear down to build from Art. Always fun to see other guys garage and projects. Manage to swing by and talk to matt a bit too. Very nice cars all around....made me jealous of both of them20171014_134959.jpg

Nice to meet you too Jeff, thanks for the old parts, even if they dont get put to use, someone out there might need em down the road.  Till then they will make good garage art LOL

Spent the day working on getting the front to fit better. Took Rich's advice from MTF and drilled out all the front spot welds and pushed the fenders out about 1/4" on the bottoms and now have a much better fit. Still going to need some filler and work but not nearly as much.

Worked on more fitment today on the fender wells and got everything where i want it. Now i need to start prepping and get out the bondo to really start proper fitment. Also finally coated the actual inside of the trunk with Rust Encapsulator but my whole garage smells of fumes so im taking a break to let it air out a bit. Keeping the garage door closed due to the colder weather really kill it when your in the back
